Hello Greg,

I just rewrote my GMAT and would like to try this again. I would really appreciate your help in reviewing my profile below.

Ethnicity/Nationality: Chinese/Canadian
Age: 30
Work Experience: 7/8 Years
GMAT: 730 (Q49, V40, AWA6, IR5)
Undergrad: University of Western Ontario in Canada majored in Finance/Accounting (3.0 GPA)


Work Experience:

2 Years at Philip Morris Int. - Market/Business Analyst within the Business intelligence team
- First Full time job out of school.
- Worked with supply chain, CRM, Marketing Data to provide solutions for Sales & Marketing.
- Was promoted once in between from a regional role to a head office role
- Lead several company wide projects (SKU Rationalization, Implement new CRM, etc) with multi-million dollar impacts.

1 Year at Spin Master Ltd (Up and coming Canadian Toy Company) - Forecasting Analyst supporting the Wal-Mart US Account
- Worked on the largest Customer/Account at the Company
- Received Vendor of the Year Award from Wal-Mart

2 Years at Spectrum Brands - Category Management for several lines of Small Kitchen Appliances
- Started as a Category Advisor for Wal-Mart Canada (supported the customer/buyer with retail strategies and execution)
- Was promoted in a year to Category Manager overseeing the category for total Canadian retail channel (Multiple large customers)
- Had 1 direct report post promotion. Grew sales by double digits

2 Years at Kraft Heinz Canada - Manager, Sales Advisor
- Joined because of opportunity to work at Tier 1 CPG company
- Worked on the Loblaws Account (#1 Grocery Chain in Canada) for several large categories (Coffee, Peanut Butter)
- Sold through all innovation items and doubled distribution/shelf face at LCL for my category.
- Worked on several large exclusivity and Preferred Vendor deals to align customer to a shared growth plan.

Current: 20 months thus far on a Canadian Smaller CPG company - Key Account Manager
- Moved into a Key Account Manager/Sales from Sales support
- Responsible for the P&L of Loblaws, Canada's largest grocery chain and the company's largest customer
- Role can be summarized to building relationships, developing a sales plan, executing the plan and delivering financial targets
- Biggest accomplishment here was that in 2017 where the account had a negative trade balance of half a million I was able to balance in 2018

Extracurricular:
I did a couple summers of pro-bono consulting with a Non-Profit Organization that organize teams and that lends help to various small businesses/NPOs seeking these services. Typical engagements relates to building marketing or operation strategy and are about 8 weeks long.

Post MBA Short Term: Move into a Strategy/Brand role within CPG.
Short/Long Term: Move into Senior executive management.
Reason for MBA: Move on to the next level in business management. My experiences have been largely executional and I'd like to be more strategic.
I have changed a few more jobs than I would've liked because of changing interest and because of restructures.

Targeting schools:

Kellogg
Cornell
Duke
Yale
Tuck
Stern

Questions:

What are my chances for those 6 schools and is age a liability at this point?

Thank you
